Lucien Favre will have a nearly full-strength squad at his disposal with only fringe players Joshua King and Elias Kachunga declared unavailable for the fixture on Saturday. Mike Hanke is expected to retain his place in the team, following his impressive performance in the 3-0 trashing of Koln.

For Dortmund the definite absentees are Julian Koch, Never Subotic and Sven Bender, who are all sidelined with injuries. It is not yet clear who will spearhead the attack for the Bundesliga champion, but following his goal against Schalke, Robert Lewandowski is likely be given the nod ahead of Lucas Barrios, who is yet to find the net for BVB this season.
